RICS HomeBuyers Report

RICS HomeBuyers Report

You should choose an RICS HomeBuyers Report if you would like more extensive information when buying a conventional house, flat or bungalow, which is built from common building materials and is in reasonable condition, and you would like information and advice on construction, condition and repairs.

An RICS HomeBuyers Report will cost more than some other types of survey, such as an RICS Condition Report, but it will give you more detail on the state and condition of the property, which you’ll find of great value when assessing if it’s the right property for you.

RICS HomeBuyers Reports, A Surveyors Perspective

There is a huge difference between a mortgage survey (often called a report on valuation) and an RICS HomeBuyers Report. The first is on behalf of the lender to check the value of your new home and the latter to check its condition.

A fact that you can't ignore is that on average homebuyers spend £5750* on repairs once moved into their new home!

This is often down to not getting a proper survey done before signing on the dotted line. Spending money now can save you thousands further on down the line.

Make sure you aren’t left with a unexpected repair bills by appointing fpsurveying to come out and see you. Getting an RICS HomeBuyers Report could be a decision that saves you thousands of pounds.

Remember a valuation is a Survey. Ask for a HomeBuyers Report

A home is the most expensive purchase most people ever make. As an owner you will benefit from expert advice on the condition of your property – whether you plan to live in it, rent it out or sell it.

During an RICS HomeBuyer Report an RICS professional conducts an in-depth visual inspection of the property. Their report provides an expert account of the property’s condition and highlights any problems in clear and easy to understand ‘traffic light’ ratings.
